Short summary
Volcanic ash poses a serious threat to aircraft traffic. A simple neural-network based technique was developed to detect volcanic ash from space using satellite infrared observations. A validation study shows promising results for several individual case studies. Issues remain near the edge of the satellite's field of view as well as in situations where ash is mixed with meteorological clouds.
